Daddy Dave Competes in Pro Mod Class in “Goliath”
When it comes to racing, there’s a constant of back-and-forth battle between drivers. Sometimes, this battle is built on the back of false pretenses. Drivers are just looking to get an advantage where they can. Whether it is an actual physical advantage with something like a head start or a mental advantage, they will do whatever they can to gain that edge. In this war of words, we hear all sorts of different concepts thrown around. One of the most common is referring to the opposition’s car as a “Pro Mod.”
For those who aren’t well initiated, basically, there is a scale from streetcar to a race car. A-Pro Mod is all the way on the “race car” side of that scale. Therefore, those who think that they’re driving streetcars hurl the term around. The idea is to gain that advantage or make it look like they pulled off something impressive.
This time, though, we actually do find a situation where Daddy Dave might just be at a more than slight disadvantage. While his car certainly isn’t one that we would daily drive, the competition here seems to be just a step above him on the race car scale. Heck, the race goes by the name of the “Summer Nationals Promod Race” at Kansas International Dragway. However, that doesn’t stop Daddy Dave from stepping up to the plate anyway. Steel body panels and all, he was going to give it a shot!
By following along with the footage below, we get the see these insane rides in action. Just because the car in the next lane over just so happens to be further modified doesn’t mean that Dave is backing down.
Dave actually managed to take his ride all the way to the finals. While he couldn’t pull off the win due to a broken transmission, we can’t help but respect the push! This one was all captured by Holeshot Productions as we get to watch it all unfold!
